      Whats Your Favorite Jack Point?

      I hate using the "recommended" lift points on the pinch welds, for the number of times a gear head lifts his car they never seem to hold up. I usually try to find other points in the subframe to lift. Anyone find a good strong jack point or jack pad?

      I use the factory Jack points with a block of wood with a slit cut down the middle to make it easier to get the Jack on it. I put my Jack stands in the channel between the pinch rail and rocker panel.

      I've had this car fall off Jack stands if you put the stands on the factory Jack points, and try to jack both sides. This car is incredibly sketchy to get onto stands

      Wood blocks, eh? Have any pics?

      Like a lot of darts, my jack points (and panels) were crushed by a dealer. I def need to investigate more and this should be a very helpful topic.

      There was a thread from April 3,2013 "Where to use floor jack and jack stands?"Name:  Silentrath.jpg

Views: 663
Size:  152.0 KB A couple of pix from that thread. I would like to see pix of the wood and placement that Imcstockdart & youngsmith53 use. I have used wood several times with jacks & jack stands and usually the weight of the car crushes the wood.

      The factory uses those locations to move the car through the plant from what i hear correctly but i never knew if it was strong enough to hold the dart on a jack stand there.
